Kahilu Exhibits presents two solo exhibitions, UNEARTHED by Kamran Samimi and smallclusters by Duncan Dempster, from June 13–August 18, 2019.  

In UNEARTHED, Samimi will be exhibiting a combination of sculpture, photography and printmaking in the Simperman Gallery of the Kahilu Theatre. While his materials and techniques vary, Kamran creates works of art that are both a tribute and a response to the rich landscapes found throughout Hawai’i while presenting different ways to observe the world around us. 

Kamran Samimi, Laupāhoehoe

Growing up in rural Laupāhoehoe has given Kamran great respect for the natural world.  Through the use of dissection, repetition, and abstraction, he seeks to uncover the essence within all things, ultimately encouraging mindful contemplation. He currently lives and works in Honolulu, where he has actively been exhibiting his artwork.  

For smallclusters, Dempster says, “The current concern of my work is the depiction of personally resonant geographic space and place through non-linear modes of representation, and an attempt to balance literal perception with psychological responses to the landscape. For this body of work, I’m focusing on the experience of places in and around the Hamakua and Kohala districts on the Big Island.”

He is currently an instructor in printmaking at the University of Hawaii, Manoa, and is the executive director of Honolulu Printmakers, a 91-year old nonprofit arts organization dedicated to promoting print culture in the state of Hawaii. He currently has an exhibit of his geometric print constructions at the Honolulu Museum of Art First Hawaiian Center.
